Your computer currently runs the Windows 7 operating system. You have added a second 20 GB hard disk drive to your computer to hold research data for a project you are working on. You have created a single simple volume on the data hard drive that takes up all the free space on the disk. After formatting the simple volume with the FAT32 file system and copying 10 GB of data to the volume you realize that you need 8 GB of un-partitioned disk space on the data disk drive. The next step you should take to free space on the data disk drive is to ______
a. shrink the existing simple volume using the DiskPart command-line utility
b. shrink the existing simple volume using the Disk Management MMC console
c. convert the 20 GB data disk to a basic disk
d. delete the existing simple volume and create a new one using the correct size
d. delete the existing simple volume and create a new one using the correct size
The maximum number of logical drives that can exist within a single extended partition is ______
